We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Xian Temple of Flourishing Teaching

Situated at the foot of Shaoling Plateau and 20 km south of Xi’an City, the Temple of Flourishing Teaching is one of the most important Chinese Buddhist temples. It is the burial place of Xuanzang. Xuanzang, the well-known pilgrim in the Chinese history, spent 15 years traveling to India and brought Buddhist scriptures back to China. In 664 Xuanzang passed away and after he was buried in a pagoda in 669, the Temple of Flourishing Teaching was built on the site. In order to encourage the development of the Buddhism, Emperor Tang Suzong (Li Heng, 711-762) wrote two characters “Xin Jiao (Flouring Teaching)”in the stupa, then the Temple of Flourishing Teaching won its name.
